Collaborating with Queer Cinema Again!!
We’re delighted to announce that following our sell out and hugely successful first collaboration with Queer Cinema back in September (missed it, take a look here), we’ve been asked to return again in November – this time at a larger venue!
So we’ve been challenged with finding another 45 minutes of content on the theme of women loving women… given we still have 39 short film submissions from the last event, that shouldn’t be a problem!
What is Queer Cinema?
The Queer Cinema is a two hour event on a Sunday afternoon where between 40 and 60 LGBTQA+ people come together to watch, and discuss 45 minutes of short films. The films are mostly subtitled to ensure accessibility (very occasionally this isn’t possible) and free refreshments are provided.
How did LesFlicks curate the programme?
Founder Naomi, and curator Caroline have gone back to the remaining 39 short films that we still loved from the first review and are busy putting together a collection for you. We’re delighted to be able to bring more of these to the big screen.
What will be showing on 2 November?
The final line up is below:
When and Where is LesFlicks Queer Cinema?
Date: Saturday 2 November
Location: Stratford Library, 3 The Grove, Stratford, London E15 1EL
Queer Cinema presents: Women loving women (curated by Lesflicks)
Whether we identify as lesbian, bisexual or queer women or as non-binary babes one thing unites us – the struggle to be visible, to be equal, to be ourselves and to see ourselves represented on screen. Occasionally we get to create a space where we are the majority and we can just be ourselves – today is one of those days!
Join our friendly and community centred session. Short films (45 minutes of shorts curated by LesFlicks) + guest speakers + interactive discussions (joining is optional). Refreshments provided.
